After weeks of speculation, 4-star tight-end Brandon Fulse has verbally committed to Auburn University.  Fulse becomes the 22nd member of Head Coach Gene Chizik's recruiting class of 2011.

The 6'4" 250 pound Fulse, is the nation's number 5 tight-end and the 94th overall prospect according to the ESPN150 rankings.  The Fort Meade High School senior was also selected as a member of the 2011 Under-Armour All-America team.

Fulse, from Fort Meade, FL, had offers from Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Florida State, South Carolina, Tennessee and Miami among others before declaring his allegiance to the Tigers. 

In advance of his announcement, which aired live on ESPNU's Recruiting Insider, Fulse had narrowed his choices to Auburn and Tennessee.  With his parents alongside, Fulse removed an Auburn hat from his sweat shirt and proudly proclaimed he was heading to the Plains.

The commitment of Fulse fills a rather large void for the Tigers who like most SEC teams needed help at the position.  The incoming freshman brings size, speed and athleticism to Auburn and could provide instant production for Chizik's offense.

Fulse joins C.J. Uzomah as the second tight-end to verbally commit to Auburn in this year's recruiting class.

According to Rivals, the Tigers currently rank 6th nationally in recruiting with less than a week to go before National Signing Day, set for Wednesday, February 2nd.
